U.S. News today released its fourth Best High Schools rankings, and was placed among the top 20 in the state.
International Academy in Bloomfield Hills was ranked No. 1 in Michigan and No. 5 nationally.
The rankings are the first for the news site since 2009. They include data on nearly 22,000 public high schools across the country. According to the report, U.S. News partnered with the Washington, D.C.-based American Institutes for Research. Schools were first analyzed at the state level in terms of how well students in each school performed on state assessments. High schools that made it through that first analysis were then eligible to be ranked nationally, in terms of college readiness. This article explains, in-depth, the methodology.
